OPC’s purposes are derived from our enabling legislation and our outcome under the Appropriation Acts.

OPC’s purposes are to:

  • enable the Government to carry out its legislative program by drafting Bills, legislative instruments to be made or approved by the Governor-General (Federal Executive Council instruments) and a range of other instruments; and
  • ensure Commonwealth laws and instruments are freely available and accessible to everyone by publishing those laws and instruments on the Legislation Register website.
